day 311: a charmed life

I know these words are backwards to you, dear reader, but they represent my quest.  "Breathe" and "Wisdom".  I bought these charms last week and keep them on a chain around my neck every single day as I finish up my classwork this summer.  Can they co-exist?  I am finding myself exhilarated, and at the same time pushed to my limit.  I can handle pressure.  I can be pushed.  Today I mentioned to my husband that I am considering a master's degree?  "Are you....?  Really?"

Sounds like a plan! I'm thinking about a Masters too - when I finally finish my degree in 2013!

Come on Karen, take a deep breath and use that wisdom...really?

More power to you in whatever you decide.

I love those charms! Good luck over the next few weeks.

You'd rock a master's program. Just sayin.

Judi | June 27, 2010 at 12:02 PM

Go for it! You are great in whatever you do!

Rachel Cotterill | June 27, 2010 at 6:25 PM

Oh, wow, good luck if you go for it! :D

I ran to get my hand mirror to read the words. I thought it was a puzzle.

Go for it!

The key to wisdom is in the breathing? I'm for it. I'll take it. Make it your platform and I'll vote for you. :)

Are you...CRAZY? Ha, ha! You can do it though. You've proven what you can do under pressure. I SO admire you. Go for it!

Charmed or bewitched or SOMETHING!! Wow, a master's degree? One challenging summer can make you feel like you can take on the world. Good luck in finishing your summer classwork. And I'll be interested to see what your future holds! (cute charms, BTW!)

Go for it!
But then I read Connie's comment and I think............hmmmm, she knows the Kazzmiester better......maybe you should listen to Connie.

When I had that episodic insanity at Girls' Camp, and climbed up the pole to ride the zip line, I had to consciously remind myself to breathe. Sometimes the simple things we need to survive aren't as easy to remember as you might think.

A well oxygenated brain tends to make better decisions. I know you will figure out what's best for you.
